Q: I'm not sure which GO CHROME brush and/or spray paint or professional spray paint is best for the job I have to do (repainting plastic and aluminum crankcases on my motorcycle, painting a stainless steel luggage rack, doing a small touch up on my exhaust pipe - rust stain).
R: If you don't spray paint, you won't be able to varnish and therefore you won't be able to have an abrasion resistant chrome thanks to professional chrome paint that is only applied with a spray gun, especially for varnishing.
In this case, you can use GO Chrome paint, which is easy, fast and very effective.
Q: About the GO Chrome paint to be applied with a brush, how to prepare the surfaces?
R: Simply degrease and remove the dust.
Q: My motorcycle's crankcases have original paint and varnish, do I need to sand the varnish?
R: Although GO Chrome will adhere everywhere, it is normally necessary to sand with 500 sandpaper before any paint work.
Q: Do aluminum crankcases need sanding?
R: Aluminum can not be sanded. It is applied directly. You do not need aluminum primer with GO Chrome paint.
Q: Can we touch up the exhaust pipe chrome (small rust spots).
R: Yes perfectly
Q: To clean the brush, what is needed as a thinner.
R: Any thinner or alcohol.
Q: How long does unused paint in a can or spray can last?
R: It can be kept for 1 to 2 years if the can is properly closed.
Q: Can GO Chrome paint be varnished and tinted?
R: As stated on the product page in "resistance", Go Chrome cannot be varnished. However, some painters have succeeded in varnishing it (Youtube), and to achieve this, regardless of the type of varnish (water or solvent), the most important thing is to use the finest airbrush nozzle possible, and to practice extra dry veils without "wetting", in order to fix the surface. The surface thus "fixed" can then be varnished normally. For the coloring of water-based or solvent-based varnishes, there are Candy concentrates in 250ml, but also candy universal concentrates (water / solvent) in 17ml
